Before the small holdings act be came law, the landed gentry fought the measure, their chief argument being that agriculture could not be made to pay, especially if carried on on a small scale.

The Agricultural Organization socie ty, in order to test a statement recent ly published that many of the small holders were in arrears inquired of the 31 co-operative unions of small holders, having land in all parts of the country, if the statement was true. The answer to this inquiry is that, out of the 500 small holdings created by the act, in not one single instance Mr. White, 403 Moore avenue (L. K Strong place.) M. L. Frazee, 716 Lynn avenue. L. H.
